Day of the Endangered Lawyer/China: CCBE

January 2017


On 24 January, the CCBE supported the Day of the Endangered Lawyer 2017 devoted to the situation of lawyers in China. This initiative is organised every year by the Day of the Endangered Lawyer Foundation and the European Democratic Lawyers (AED), with the support of several other lawyers’ organisations. Each year, there is a focus on a different country. This year the country chosen was China, given the particularly intense crackdown against lawyers which has happened since 2015. The CCBE participated in a demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy in Brussels, together with representatives of the Belgian Bar and other lawyer and human rights organisations. The CCBE also participated in the conference organised by the International Observatory for Lawyers in danger (OIAD) in Paris. Demonstrations happened in 19 countries around the world.
